Clinic Band Required Scales (15 points)

Scales: Scales are to be played from memory in any order. The order is to be listed on the audition ticket. A scale evaluation sheet will be used by all judges. If a scale is played incorrectly, it may be attempted at the end of the sequence, if there is time remaining in the two minute limit. If there is time left, the judge will announce those scales for which full credit has not been given.

Key Signatures: Know proper key signatures of all required major keys, and flats and sharps in the order that they appear on the staff.

Scales can be played using any type of notation. (eighths, triplets, etc.) However, they must be played using the ranges provided, otherwise they will be judged as incorrect. Click the links below to view the scales for each instrument, then print them out for use.
